Friday Funk and soul
This from HUW... making every Friday better.
Love is all we need
It's akways super busy over here at the fake offices, but today we just want to stop and say thanks to all of the great musicians who make this world a better place. Todd, Russ, Greg, Jonathan, Aaron, Mike, Otis (Grove), Kuf, Ethan, and ALL of the Ropeadope extended family of hardworking music makers - Thank You for doing what you do! Folks, show these dedicated people some love today.
Your (Analog) Attention Please
From Moscow, Russia (with love) ... Analog Attention drops their debut album on the world today. Fresh from the mind of bandleader Max Shcherbakov, the record draws from influences from Jaga Jazzist to Snarky Puppy. Stream it here and here, and support a growing jazz scene in Russia by heading over to Itunes and giving it some stars.
Rainy Day Dream Away
It's about as gloomy and wet as it gets here on the East Coast USA, and this little nugget of goodness just dropped in my lap(top). Take your Friday afternoon out with a Mixcloud mashup from the brothers Dolton in the UK, aka HUW. If you dig what they do, follow them or send some love their way in the form of a music purchase.
JSF in NYC
Check it folks, we are stoked to announce Jonathan Scales Fourchestra as the newest addition to the Ropeadope Family. The record is redunkulous, with guest appearances from Victor Wooten and Howard Levy. The music drops on July 9, but first get on board with these cats on Friday night in NY - check it all right here.
Pan Grass (featuring Futureman)
Get ready Philly town, Rich Mystics are landing at The Barbary on Thursday night with a sound that spans the psychedelia from Syd to The revolution. Who are Rich Mystics you say? Barney Cortez and Nick Bockrath in their most transcendent state of musical exploration.
